Young Person’s Service

Our Young Persons Service (YPS) provides high quality support and housing to young people aged 16 to 25 years in Hertfordshire. We’re looking for motivated, reliable and innovative individuals who are able to work proactively to help us support vulnerable and complex young people.

A day in the life of a YPS Worker

We sat down with one of our Young Person’s Service Project Workers, Elise. We spoke about how she first got into the housing sector, what a typical day at work looks like, and what she loves most about working at Catalyst.

A typical day involves support plan sessions. Support plans are always person-centred and they provide easy steps to help young people achieve their goals.
We contact every young person at our scheme daily to see if they are okay. We’re alert to any safeguarding concerns involving our young people.
We work with our residents to help them manage their needs. This varies from financial support, emotional wellbeing, substance misuse, self harm, and anger management.
We support our residents to manage their rent and budgeting, so we liaise with housing benefit, universal credit, and other benefit departments.

The best part of working for Catalyst is that no two days are the same. I enjoy working in a vibrant building surrounded by lovely team members.
